"I have no inside information" on what decision Mr Trump will make on the agreement, Mr Macron told journalists.

He also warned that the Iran nuclear deal should not be abandoned without something more substantial to replace it with. Trump has said he will decide by May 12.

"The rational analysis of all his statements does not make me think that he will do everything to maintain" the agreement signed with Iran to prevent the Islamic republic from acquiring an atomic bomb. "What is the meaning of our life, really, if we work and live destroying the planet, while sacrificing the future of our children?"

The French President also pressed for an global consensus for achieving peace in war-torn Syria and said, "Together, in the long run, we can find a solution to the Syrian situation".

"I can say it from my standpoint". "That is why we can not say we should get rid of it like that", he said. "We have to accept that because there is no other option, and it's the bet of your president that this period of tension could be fruitful because it could push them to move".

At times in his speech Wednesday, Macron lauded policies that have flowed from the relationship, including the recent airstrikes by U.S., French and British forces against three suspected chemical weapons facilities in Syria. "You are the one now who has to preserve and reinvent it".

He added, "This requires more than ever the United States involvement as your role was decisive for creating and safeguarding this free world".

Trump has been a consistent critic of the global agreement, calling the 2015 pact "insane" and "ridiculous".

It can be tempting to us as a temporary remedy to our fears", Macron said.

He agreed with Mr Trump that any deal should include a wider agreement on Iran's influence in the Middle East and should cover the country's nuclear activities longer term, as well as its ballistic missile program.

The appeal from two of the signatories to the landmark 2015 accord came as French President Emmanuel Macron was on a state visit, received with much pomp by US President Donald Trump.

"France will not leave the [Iran deal], because we signed it", he declared. "That is why we can not say we should get rid of it like that".

There was also a remarkable moment when Mr Trump led his guest's hand as they walked outside the White House.
